National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

At every turn our world fails to protect Black women as the interpersonal violence of DV is often compounded by the state, but we keep us safe. Here are some things we can do:

Teach safe and healthy relationship skills

Improve school climate and safety

Strengthen economic supports for families.

Modify the physical and social environments of neighborhoods

Listen to survivors and support victim-centered services treatment and restorative justice models.
